We have a 10-foot brick cook center in our kitchen. Old Chicago brick. The mortar is black (ugly). I want to limewash it - will the mortar still be dark? Help please.

We've just started uncovering a plastered over brick wall in our dining room so I've jumped on Houzz to see other people's ideas. I really love the way it looks but we only have one wall (the rest of the walls are breeze block) so we need to maximise the impact. Great photos for inspiration, thank you!
